My first experience here. Lovely wine. It took some time to open, but the wait was worth it. A muted nose gave way to some florals and the palate is drive by blackberry jam, then some briny olive and peppercorn Really cool. Medium acidity and dark purple hue. Not a long finish but we’ll rounded and time will be it’s friend 93pts now, and i would guess it could reach 94-96 in time — 3 days ago
A very good Cabernet. Needs time to breathe to soften the tannins. Opens up to rich, fruity Cabernet. — a month ago
Without question the best cabernet franc I’ve ever had from California, this is unfortunately the last bottle I have. I don’t know what happened in 2007, but Gerhard made a spectacular cab franc that has no parallel before or since (of course, the winery no longer exists - at least not in any recognizable form - but you get my meaning). Still drinking incredibly well, this was a singular achievement from what always was a WAY underrated winery. — a month ago

A friend said he would bring a Peter Michael red,so I thought it would be fun to bring a white.
The opening nose is predominantly citrus and jasmine, not the ripe stone fruits I was expecting. Golden apple, pear, roasted nuts, and hint of brioche followed as it opened up in the glass. Viscous but not heavy on the palate with well judged acidity. Beautiful balance between richness and delicacy. Long mineral driven finish.
